Missing: Where Did The Residents of An Entire Eskimo Village Go?

An individual that vanishes is one thing, but how about an entire village of 2,000 men, women and children?

In November, 1930, a fur trapper named Joe Labelle made his way on snow shoes to an Eskimo village on the shores of Lake Anjikuni in northern Canada. Labelle was familiar with the village, which he knew as a thriving fishing community of about 2,000 residents.

When he arrived, however, he found a deserted village. All of the huts and storehouses were vacant. He found one smoldering fire with a pot of blackened stew. Labelle notified the authorities and an investigation began, soon after some bizarre findings were reported: no footprints of any of the residents were found, if they had vacated the village; all of the Eskimos’ sled dogs were found buried under a 12-foot-high snow drift – they had all starved to death; all of the Eskimos’ food and provisions were found undisturbed in their huts. Maybe the most intriguing detail was that the Eskimos’ ancestral graves had all been emptied.

  1. Dear Circa 71:

    Forget for the moment the mysterious disappearance of an entire Eskimo village.

    Let us instead consider the case of the mysterious cessation of the Circa 71 Image Dumps. These posts were 10 lbs of awesome in a 5 lb bag, and one day they just mysteriously up and disappeared, without even a cryptic “croatoan” carved into a digital tree.

    Is there any chance of the Image Dumps ever returning to these halls? Or are they, like ancient Lemuria, gone forever?

      Never fear faithful reader for there are certainly more image dumps that will soon grace the pages of Circa71.

      Stay tuned, your comment may have accelerated the process.

      Thank you!
